What Is WPC Flooring?

what is wpc flooringWPC, or wood plastic composite flooring, is the next generation of vinyl flooring that offers many benefits to consumers in commercial and residential settings.  WPC flooring has revolutionized how we think of vinyl flooring, which has come a long way in recent years.  WPC flooring provides aesthetically beautiful flooring options that mimic real wood planks or stone tiles, with added durability and several additional benefits.   

WPC Flooring is Built to Last

WPC flooring includes hybrid flooring options that are patented with an extruded core constructed of a synthetic plastic mix and recycled wood, combined together to produce moisture resistant and waterproof planks.  WPC has a PVC veneer which provides dependable durability and moisture resistance that will not warp or swell when exposed to water.

WPC flooring such as COREtec™ by US Floors™ is constructed with four distinct layers, combining strong and beautiful in one revolutionized product. The layers in this strong flooring product include:

    • Attached cork underlayment for mold and mildew resistance with added sound insulation, while absorbing subfloor imperfections.
    • COREtec’s waterproof core structure that will not expand or contract
    • Luxury vinyl top layer provides a resilient, beautiful layer that resists dents and chips
    • Top wear layer provides stain resistance protecting against excessive wear even in commercial traffic with an easy cleaning surface

This amazingly comfortable and beautiful flooring is a smart investment that will add value to your home or office for many years to come.  

Many Benefits of WPC Flooring

This elegant looking flooring adds value to your home while providing several additional benefits including:

 

    • Realistic look of real wood or stone offers maximum versatility with beautiful designs that make it difficult to tell the difference between WPC and the real thing
    • Multiple layers provides added comfort over hardwood or stone, providing the same beauty without wearing on your joints
    • 100% waterproof flooring is ideal in kitchens, bathrooms or basements where your floor may be exposed to moisture
    • Easy cleaning with low maintenance allows for vacuuming or a quick damp mopping to keep your floor clean and beautiful
